        I couldn’t believe the voters (or the Republican Party) elected him back into Congress in the first place after the nonsense he pulled as governor. Time to go get a real job, Sanford. What an embarrassment to the party and the state!

We really have to do this, sooner than later.

            Thanks scslayer. I love hearing info about SC, one of my favorite states. My son attended University of SC at Columbia and I love the SC coast. Wish my son had stayed in SC so we could have retired there. So I’m intensely interested in SC politics. I hurt for you when Trey Gowdy turned out to be all hat and no cowboy. Trump opened my eyes about Haley (who is doing a good job at UN), Scott (who seems to be coming around) and Graham (him, too) but I was sad to see the Establishment rot/gangrene had infected even SC.

              [There was no reply button on your other post, so…]
              One of the interesting things to hear when walking around the Charleston peninsula where the buggies roam, is to hear the drivers talking about the glorious Revolutionary War and the dedicated patriotic resistance our people put up here. Then you have the drivers (some of the same drivers I suppose) who talk about the “civil war” in much lowered tones, as though it would be shameful to take any pride in it.

              The irony is that when I’ve described this to many very liberal people here who *are* ashamed of the Confederacy, the response is “It’s the same guys”.

              So it’s clear that modern liberalism is a complete hypocrisy. In fact, the Secession was far less of a rebellion than the Revolution, if it even could be characterized as a rebellion.

It’s tax laws favor retirees and senior citizens. Unfortunately, those moving here from the Northeast are democrats and Graham eschews their political ideology.

          Graham is financed by the CoC and out of state money. When he is primaried, the uniparty makes sure there are plenty of candidates running so as to dilute the vote and he ends up winning.

                  The “Civil” War was not a civil war by definition. Two factions were not fighting for the control of a nation. The “Civil” War was in fact the Second American Revolution. The Southern states did exactly what the 13 colonies did to King George. REBELLED. In 1776, the Rebels won; in 1865, the rebels lost. Yes, the South had slaves. The South was agricultural. One of the reasons it lost the war was a lack of Industry and a navy. Guess where the Southerners got the slaves in the first place. Yep, you got it. From the Northerners who owned the boats which brought the slaves to the South. No one can defend slavery – it was/is morally wrong.But we should never confuse slavery with states rights. Had the South won, they would have been a separate nation; they would not have imposed slavery on the North. Ignorance is bliss, and that’s why God made Democrats.

                4sure. Let me explain. I just voted for a RINO in VA. Here’s why. He’s an incumbent. He can defeat the Democrat who will be worse. The person who primaried him had no name recognition, would not have been able to win and would have had to fight both the Dems AND the Repub. establishment which in VA is pretty ruthless. (They kept Gingrich off the ballot in 2012 because he didn’t get his “paper work” in in time. This after he’d won big in SC). So I held my nose, took my barf bag and voted for him (he ran on all Trump’s accomplishments by the way, most of which he probably voted against). Here’s how I justify it. I have contacted his office and told his campaign worker who dropped by the house that he has my vote so long as Trump is in office (he won’t vote to impeach) BUT the minute Trump is out of office, then I start voting against him even if I do let the Democrat win. That’s how I’m able to sleep at night. His opponent would have been a let better but could not win. If I were in SC I’d feel the same about Lindsey Graham. So long as Trump is safe, buddy, so are you, so you’d better hire bodyguards for him if you want to stay in office.

                  I think “authentic voting” is what leads to surprising underdog victories. It also frees you to focus on what’s important – the ideas the candidate holds.

              It is hard to figure but Oregon is the same way. It is hard to find people who were born here working in the local governments. It may be an effort by the leftys to take over the local and state governments. While working in one, I also noticed that they would go out of their way to hire from out of the state. When they run the Elections department and count the votes only bad things can happen.

              The Universities also bring leftys in and brainwash them and a lot of them hang around.

              People move here and the first thing they seem to want to do is make this state a giant park. The timber industry supported this state for a century but it was never about the environment but about crippling the economy. Another nail in our national coffin.

              It really isn’t about north vs south as it is about the left working tirelessly to destroy our economy and ultimately our nation from the inside.

            I was born and grew up in Pennsylvania. After service in the military I came back home for 3 years and then moved away. I have been living in the South and Southwest for over half of my life. What I brought with my when I made the move is my conservative values, the ones I was taught by my parents. What I didn’t bring with me when I made the move, is the tax and spend mentality that so many of the carpetbagging Yankees bring when they move south. Such idiots they are. They leave the north because of high taxes and unemployment, and then some of them run for office, get elected and what do they do? They try to raise taxes and inject the stupid liberal agenda into their communities.

            Liberal Yankees can best be described like this. They are like hemorrhoids. When they come down and go back up, they are not a problem. When they come down and stay down, they are a REAL PAIN IN THE ASS. So, the next time you run across a carpetbagging liberal Yankee, hand them a tube of Preparation H. When they ask you what it’s for, tell them it’s to help them transition back up north.

            4sure – Welcome to Virginia. We used to be a red state and then all the Yankees who destroyed their states came to VA and slowly turned our red state blue by voting in the same policies that destroyed their home states. Most of rural VA is red but the blue cities over vote us and stick us with Senators like Kaine and Warner and Governors like Northam. Thankfully, I’m old enough that by the time they turn the country blue and the USA becomes United Soviet Socialist America I’ll either be pushing up daisies or so old I won’t know what’s going on.

      Tell me where, in our Constitution, that marriage “rights” are mentioned. The word marriage is never mentioned, let alone a “right” for it—whether hetero or homo.
      Marriage is a sacramental “rite”. But the left has conflated the two.
      For people who scream for separation of church and state, this was the ultimate intertwining of the two, when SCOTUS approved homosexual marriage. Government should be out of the marriage business, period. People marry in the eyes of God, but government demands we pay for a license.

        You are correct. The federal government has no authority over marriage, unless there’s a genuine state interest, such as the prohibition of polygamy/bigamy, even if considered a “religious” belief, or other practices that are disruptive or damaging to the common good of culture and society or that harm/infringe on another’s genuine individual rights. That includes prohibiting practices (that may, or may not, also fall under “religious” practices) such as child marriage/exploitation/pedophilia, incestuous marriages, forced marriage, under threat of physical harm (or, for that matter, that break other laws, like human sacrifice, murder, rape, disfigurement, assault, sedition, etc.). Religion is not a guise for a free-for-all of practices. 

        With few exceptions, all authority regarding the laws/rules of marriage belongs to the individual States. Churches and secular marriage providers have to abide by the few State (and federal) laws put into place to protect the defenseless and the common good, but you’re right that marriage has always been viewed as a sacred union, whether the rites are administered by the church or by a secular authority. That’s as far as government should ever be involved in marriage. If States want to recognize same-sex marriage, then its people decide, not SCOTUS.

        There is no “right” to be married, but you (child and adult) do have the right to be protected by the state/State laws from force and harm, and as a member of a stable society, and to have the remedy of equal justice under the law, if you are.

For nearly two decades we have had representation in the GOP that is incapable of standing and saying NO. They talk and talk and nothing gets done. At least Trump is getting things done and at a remarkably rapid pace. He’s got to steer this enormous ship away from the rocks and the falls and he’s got to push hard to do it quickly.

        What I see as having happened is:
        At the beginning of the 20th C., we were THESE United States. At the end of the 20th c.we were THE United States. Not a small difference. Each state had authority over everything NOT enumerated in the Constitution as belonging to the Feds. Very few things. Now the states have no authority over anything. California can vote against gay marriage and the Feds say, nope, you can’t do that.

        At the beginning of the 20th C., we had three “Progressive” presidents. Two were Republican and one was Democrat. I suspect it was then that the UniParty was formed. They just needed to keep up the pretense that it was a two party country so the people wouldn’t realize their vote mattered only in which wing of the UniParty they chose.

        Reagan upset the applecart. He never said “Make America Great Again” but he was as much a disrupter as PDJT and they said THE SAME THING about him including making fun of his “orange” hair. He was going to start WWII, he was going to get us into a war, he was going to crash the economy, set back equal and civil rights. So they foisted upon him one of the UniParty (GHWB). Remember, three months after he was inaugurated, he was nearly killed. By a guy who wanted Jodie Foster’s attention? P-uleeze. I don’t know what Hinckley’s motive was but if he wanted Jodie Foster’s attention, he’d have shot Robert de Niro.

        Reagan survived HInckley’s attempt on his life and the sympathy for him was such that the UniParty had to back off. They hunkered down figuring they’d take him out in 1984, couldn’t do it, so sucked it up until 1988, and the UniParty took over again in the form of GHWB and his “new world order” which more appropriately is “Make America the Worlds Piggy Bank”. Bush I, Clinton, Bush II — did any of them govern any differently than the other? I don’t think the UniParty expected Obama. It was supposed to be Hillary in 08, but Soros at all outfoxed them and we got a genuine Marxist in the WH who openly said he’d “change” America.

        So here we are. Trump unmasked NOBODY. They unmasked themselves. Had the Repub wing of the UniParty played it smart and not gone batsh** crazy over Trump, I doubt I would have figured it out until it was too late and we had Jeb! or Marco.

        The only reason we even have a suggestion of two parties is the media which is Marxist so wants the most Marxist candidate to win.

Our “true conservative” voices shipped our jobs and manufacturing to parts north and south, east and west, enacted laws (Patriot act) that allowed them to spy/collect info on us all, allowed our healthcare system to be taken over, got us into multiple endless wars, propped up overseas banks with our money, enacted common core in every school system they could breach, etc., etc. etc. Seems like you can no longer be conservative unless you are full-on new world order, COC etc…..ok I guess I haven’t been a “true conservative” for a while…..and I am damn glad I am not!

      I’m not sure it’s important anymore to determine whether a politician is conservative or not. The word, conservative, has been misused and abused to the extent that it is now virtually meaningless. I see Trump as a transitional figure, one who will show a new generation of politicians a way to govern effectively while adhering to the Constitution and the Rule of Law. Trump may not be a conservative’s messiah, but he comes close enough for now.

        [American Conservatism: An Encyclopedia , 2006]

        “Classical liberalism” is the term used to designate the ideology advocating private property, an unhampered market economy, the rule of law, constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion and of the press, and international peace based on free trade. Up until around 1900, this ideology was generally known simply as liberalism. The qualifying “classical” is now usually necessary, in English-speaking countries at least (but not, for instance, in France), because liberalism has come to be associated with wide-ranging interferences with private property and the market on behalf of egalitarian goals. ………”

      If you saw the Gordon Gekko speech from Wall Street circa 1987, and then watch Trump’s appearances on late night TV ever since 1987, it’s the same message:

      “Our fiscal and trade deficits are at nightmare proportions……you see all these corporate vice-presidents here, doing nothing……there’s no longer any accountability to the people, the shareholders…”

      And that’s Trump – not just a smart businessman, but a leader with a vision for America.

      He outed the RINO’s, who did nothing but kiss Obama’s ass and gave him what he wanted, including bills that bloated the national debt. None of them had the good sense to do their jobs, including passing an annual budget, which is something they are required by law to do. When they weren’t kissing up to Obama, they were taking care of their elitist friends.

      That’s all changing now. America’s sleeping citizens have woken up, and under President Trump’s leadership, we are collectively draining the swamp, one candidate at a time. Out here in Arizona, Flakey Flake will be gone by year’s end. Hopefully McCain will be gone as well. He doesn’t have the decency to do the right thing and retire. No, that sorry SOB is going to hold on until the very end, when we will have to pry that power from his cold, dead hands and pry we will. I, like so many of my fellow citizens, are so tired of these old farts who have created so many problems for this country, including the massive debt they are leaving behind. Yep, they don’t care because they won’t be around to deal with the mess they created, but my grown children and grandchildren will, which is why it’s important that we get a handle on this now and work towards reducing that debt and shrinking the federal government.

      Most of what Pres Trump has talked about is rooted in conservative doctrine

      2A
      Strong Military
      No apologies to other countries
      Support for allies
      Emphasis on reducing violent crime
      Support for law enforcement
      Border security
      Taxes
      Healthcare
      Judge nominees
      Support for right to life
      Reducing terrorism/ISIS

      It’s just that the President describes his conservative tendencies within the America First philosophy which freaks out the Republican globalists/NeverTrumpers.

      So much of this would meet with Reagan’s approval. Tone and style? Well maybe not that. Therefore I would argue that he is the most conservative president we have had in my lifetime. His America First/good vs evil appeal is what crosses party lines.

      I can’t think of any left wing/liberal positions he has taken. But you’re quite right, Trump is about RESULTS not words, ideas, or “muh principles”.

      And so much of MAGA is nothing more than pro-growth, pro-employment, pro-American economic policy which is neither liberal, nor conservative, nor unique to either major party. Donald Trump is far more a free-trader than any self-proclaimed “free trader” is. His tactics of imposing reciprocal tariffs is more about tearing down trade barriers than erecting them.

    As a resident of the 1st District, this result pleases me immensely.

    Mark Sanford has been a fixture in this area, and my state, since he won his first election to the House back in 1994. He rode the massive Red Wave to victory that year which put the GOP back in full control of Congress for the first time since the 1940s.

    Mark promised to vote to reduce government spending, balance the budget, reform entitlements, and support conservative ideals and economic policies. He also promised to serve only three terms. He saved money for his constituents by sleeping in his office at the Capitol.

    All of those promises were kept.
    Sanford was an excellent congressman representing this district for six years.

    Then Mark ran for and became governor.
    Even though his term was far from perfect, he stayed the conservative course, took heat for many decisions and had such a terrible relationship with the legislature that not much of consequence was accomplished. By the end his name was being floated for a possible vice-president or presidential candidacy in 2012.

    Then Sanford visited Argentina.
    Then that infamous hike along the Appalachian Trail.

    He completely lost his damn mind.
    Mark, his well-tanned mistress, and Jenny turned the state into a circus for months.
    He hung on to the governorship when he should have resigned.

    After a few years of licking his wounds, Mark Sanford came back and asked this district for a second chance at redemption.
    He got that chance.
    After a few years, once again, he blew that chance.

    Mark, you went way too far carrying water for the GOPe, the US CoC, Goldman Sachs, and the Koch brothers.

    I suggest that you go beg one of them for a job.

    Because the people of South Carolina, U.S. House District 1, just gave you a message from President Trump.

    You’re fired.

        Trump happened USMCLt. When he came along and was not part of the UniParty, they went nuts and in hysteria ripped off the masks they’ve been wearing. I was fooled by them, too. I honestly thought there was a difference between an establishment R and an establishment D, and then Trump came along and I looked at Bush, Clinton, Bush, exactly how did they govern any differently from each other. Did the country not march on the same trajectory under Clinton as it had under Bush? Did it not march on the same trajectory under Bush II as it did under Clinton. What did they do differently. Did any jobs stay on shore? Were our trade deficits any better. And then came Obama who took it to a whole new level and nearly destroyed the country. But even then, look what happened in 08 when it was McCain’s “turn”. Did they not drive Gary Johnson out of the party? Did they not undercut Huckabee? Santorum? Did we really have a choice for whom to vote? What about 12? It was Romney’s “turn”. Look what they did to Gingrich when he had the temerity to defeat Romney in SC. Look how Romney tore up Gingrich but basically kissed Obama’s posterior. Yet I never put all of this together until Trump came along and they all went batsh** trying to take him down.
